We all need some Swiss precision and skills in our lives and Caran D'Ache make beautiful writing & drawing implements. I first discovered the wonder of Caran D'Ache with their crayons at college which changed to paint when wet, they have always employed the most advanced, innovative skills.
Although we may all now tap away with our fingers, it’s nice to draw out your pen and start writing especially with a beautiful pen which helps you write neatly & legibly. So get writing, my favourite is the Original 849 Goldbar Pen this particular pen has been in production since 1969, racking up over 15m sales it’s a classic , I also love writing with a fountain pen as you can pick out a nice coloured ink and your hand writing does improve dramatically, the Madison Cisele Silver Fountain Pen is pure luxury to write with.
These are my five favourites
